Out in the natural world, a boy is in awe of its beauty. Birds in flight amaze him. School squats at the end of summer. He is fey, and bullies aren’t comfortable with that. They attack him. How can he defend himself?
The book comes complete with a personal field guide to the flowers and birds of its pages.
When young, Paul Harfleet felt that tug between the world’s natural beauties and a world that could be vicious to gay children. Paul conceived and runs The Pansy Project, an activist movement which since 2005 has planted pansies at the sites of homophobic attacks around the world.
